Diversity and Innovation . . . Change

Diversity and Innovation . . . Change

Diversity and Innovation . . . Change
By Margaret Ann Lembo

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

This quote is attributed to both Max Planck and Albert Einstein. Both of these men were scientists.

Change is an opportunity for transformation and advancement. It brings breakthroughs and metamorphosis. It is through the ever-changing cycles of life – daily, weekly, monthly, and so on – that you find improvement. Change always brings about better life situations. Sometimes it takes a moment, or much longer, to relax into the experience and allow the revelations and realizations to bubble to the surface of your consciousness.

First, recognize and accept that change is in the process of happening. Ask yourself these questions:

“What’s changing in my life? How will these changes affect my future? Why am I feeling apprehensive about these new life experiences?”

Call on help from the Divine. Take time for contemplative thought and a quiet mind. This helps you shift and flow with change. The only constant in life is change. Make the effort to awaken and know the source of underlying issues. Life flows in circles and cycles. All cycles shift and change. Focus on how you want your reality to manifest in alignment with the changes that are occurring. Thoughts and beliefs create reality. You are in charge of your own world. Release worry and have faith and courage. Design your reality.

Essential Oils and Gemstones for Change:
Add the assistance of aromatherapy and crystals to improve your ability to focus on your desired outcome. Elemi essential oil encourages you to make the changes needed to restructure the thoughts that are constantly rotating through your consciousness. Let this oil be a reminder to observe the thoughts you have and to make sure those thoughts are what you want to broadcast to the universe. Work with orange calcite to activate a creative approach to situations that are initially challenging and pink calcite to embrace kindheartedness as you go through life-changing situations.

Set an intention and make a petition to the Divine, like this:
Please help me relax and flow with the ever-turning cycles that create change. Help me find ways to consciously effectuate change. Help me easily adapt so that my new way of life is happy and fulfilling.

Affirm:
I create my reality. I know how to make positive changes to transform my life in a desired way. I embrace change with ease and grace.

Archangel Zadkiel by Margaret Ann Lembo

Archangel Zadkiel by Margaret Ann Lembo

Archangel Zadkiel is the archangel to call on to help you find ease when you need to transform and transmute challenges.

Archangel Zadkiel helps you to amplify kindness and mercy. Archangel Zadkiel aids in sympathy and empathy.

This archangel can be your ally when you need to and want to have mercy on the people who try to trick or deceive you. It is beneficial to have compassion for those who have been unkind to you. It is empowering to have an unselfish concern for others, especially when they may not have acted with care or concern for you.

Negative feelings and memories of past negative situations can be hard to overcome. With Zadkiel as your ally, you can find a way to feel gratitude for these experiences and the opportunity to grow and evolve because of the challenges. Who do you want to forgive? Do you need to forgive yourself? With this angel on your side, you have the opportunity to transform and transmute the situation into one that is filled with compassion, gratitude, and love.

Focus on your heart center and enhance meditative practices using a few gemstones like amethyst to transform and transmute challenges, chrysoprase for comfort, malachite to observe patterns and habits, or rhodochrosite to find the silver lining in any situation. Inhale sweet marjoram or sage essential oil with the intention to clear away residual resentment that might be buried deep within your consciousness.

Invite Archangel Zadkiel to walk by your side so that I can feel, know, and understand the experience. Ask for guidance to be an instrument to serve humanity through sensitivity and compassion.

Affirm:
I forgive and forget past injustices. I release resentment. I open myself up to the healing energy. I am compassionate and kind. I attract thoughtful, loving people into my life. I focus on empathy and speak with kindness and compassion.

Are you ready to transform your life?

Are you ready to transform your life?

Fall is a time for shedding the old to make room for the new. Imagine any habits or thoughtforms that you’re ready to release are falling away like the leaves of a tree. Consciously decide to replace these with positive habits that will bring you closer to your goals and watch your life transform.

There are many saints and angels that can help you in this pursuit though my two favorites are Archangel Zadkiel and Saint Germain. Both are associated with the color purple, and Saint Germain connects you with the Violet Flame of Transformation.

Archangel Zadkiel is the angel of mercy and encourages forgiveness which is a big part of letting go. Not only must we forgive those we perceive have wronged us, but in many cases, we need to forgive ourselves for the part we played in the situation. Often “bad” habits come with a certain amount of guilt or shame and to fully release the habit we also must forgive ourselves.

Archangel Zadkiel also uses those around us as mirrors to show us areas of our lives we might need to work on. Have you noticed that people and situations are reflecting your feelings or thoughts? Archangel Zadkiel might already be working in your life to aid in your self-awareness and personal growth.

 

Saint Germain and the Violet Flame are all about transmutation. Think of the Violet Flame like universal recycling, it takes in”negative” or unwanted energy and changes it into positive energy. Saint Germain also offers a higher perspective and understanding through hindsight. Through this fuller understanding, healing can truly begin. Lessons also become clear and you’ll find you no longer need to repeat the same patterns over and over again.

I can’t talk about transformation without mentioning Amethyst! Amethyst is the perfect ally during times of change. It aids in releasing addiction and can ease transformation. To use this vibration in changing unwanted situations, imagine yourself surrounded by a vibrating, glowing bubble of violet light emanating from the stone. As you imagine this, know that all that you are upset about or challenged by is currently being transformed and transmuted into something powerful. Imagine the situation changing to what you do want versus how it currently is. The vibration of your imagination of how you want your life to be combined with the violet light will effectuate change.

Pair any of these tools with the following affirmation: “I create my reality. I can change my reality. It’s easy for me to transform and transmute challenging situations. I use my intuition and follow my hunches.”

Challenging Transformations with Amethyst

There are cycles when life is just plain challenging. It seemingly comes out of nowhere but in reality, the challenges are often the result of complacency. Eventually, the cosmic two-by-four will essentially knock you upside the head to get you to pay attention and wake up! This two-by-four is ultimately a huge gift in personal development which opens the door to a positive transformation. The challenging experiences come in various forms depending on your personal life circumstances. Grab a piece of amethyst – or a pile of amethyst – and work with the positive vibrations of purple crystalline structure to restore your life and your equilibrium.

Amethyst is great for changing any situation. Use it when you are having trouble with friends or any difficult situation. The truth is that you can always change your life. It starts with changing your thoughts and your perception of reality. Focus on gratitude and use amethyst for mindfulness when you repetitively misunderstand others or are being misunderstood.

Take the time to contemplate what you want your life to be like and to feel like. With amethyst in hand or nearby, put your attention on the needed changes. Focus all of your awareness on what it will take to get those changes to happen. Then, do it!  

Imagine the color purple flowing around you as you reinvent your life experiences. Use amethyst to think clearly and intelligently, access your intuition, answers you need, and balance your mind.

Use this Amethyst Positive Thought Affirmation:

“I see, sense, feel and know life is magical. I release all habits no longer for my highest good. I have a great connection with my spirit guides and angels. I am very intuitive. I trust my feelings. It’s easy for me to take action to create the life I want to experience.”
